I haven’t posted in so long because I sort of washed my hands of the remodel for a couple months – after major hiccups with the kitchen and custom cabinets including a ‘cabinet maker’ who basically didn’t really know what he was doing and delivered a few very poorly built and warped cabinets, our contractor finally found a new cabinet maker, who has been great. However, it has been 2 months since he started the rebuild of the cabinets that had been built (he pretty much had to take them apart and put them back together) and we had some issues with communication between our contractor and the cabinet maker (not the fault of the cabinet maker). But finally, the remainder of the cabinets have been delivered and installed. It has been 5 months now without a kitchen, and with a 3 1/2 year old and a 5 month old who has started eating baby food, it has been a huge challenge. When we started this phase of the remodel back on December 27th, we were told it would be done by the end of January. Hence my frustration and exasperation. So, I’m so excited for the light at the end of the tunnel!
All of our appliances are in the little space between the living room and kitchen, which is not awesome. But, we ran out of room in the garage since it is full of boxes!:
All of these cabinets are currently birch ply and will be painted. The uppers and the whole bank of tall cabinets running the span of the back wall will be walnut. We would have liked to do all walnut, but budget didn’t allow it and I am sort of digging the two tone look.
More to come soon, I promise, as since I drafted this post counters have been installed and cabinets have been painted!
